Atheism requires as much faith as religion? bearvspuma : The only problem with this rationalization is that ita s assuming all athiests are so because theya re intelligent in the ways of science and reasoning and all people that believe in a form of god are unintelligent.

You're creating an COMPLETELY ARBITRARY distinction.
I said I knew a guy who could shoot lasers.
You didn't believe me because humans can't shoot lasers.
I said the rules don't apply because he's a superhuman, not a regular human.
If I had said the rules don't apply because he's a god, not a regular human, that's the SAME ARGUMENT. And it's the SAME ARGUMENT you're making for Jesus.
So I guess you think that Mighty Mouse also has "superhuman" powers.....

Ugh you people...

Taking scripture out of context is what you militant atheist are so notorious for. For example Deuteronomy 28 Verse 1-13 tells the positive and good things God will do for his people if they obey him.
Verse 13 - 68 tells what happens if they donít obey him.
Actually I donít even think you know what it is you are posting. You go to an atheist web site and cut & paste. Without doing any research to see what it is your pasting
Ezekiel 39 is about prophecy about the enemies of Israel.
There is NO out of context.

The Bible contains a warrant for trafficking in humans, for ethnic cleansing, for slavery, for bride-price, and for indiscriminate massacre, but we are not bound by any of it because it was put together by crude, uncultured goat herders.

Religious exhortation and telling people, telling children, that if they donít do the right thing, theyíll go to terrifying punishments or unbelievable rewards, thatís making a living out of lying to children.

Your religion is man-made. Even the men who made it cannot agree on what their prophets or redeemers or gurus actually said or did.

Judaism has some advantages over Christianity in that, for example, it does not proselytize, except among Jews and it does not make the cretinous mistake of saying that the Messiah has already made his appearance.

However, along with Islam and Christianity, it does insist that some turgid and contradictory and sometimes evil and mad texts, obviously written by fairly unexceptional humans, are in fact the word of god.

Genesis 19:34

The scripture you list is about a sin that occurred after Sodom and Gomorrah was destroyed. Lot gets drunk and his stupid daughters participate in incest. Bad things happen when you drink too much. Also bad things happen when you donít raise your kids in a righteous environment.

God didnít tell those girls to do that. And neither did Lot. The bible doesnít hide this sin but reveals how perverted these former inhabitants of Sodom and Gomorrah
were.

Yet you point this scripture out as if this was something that was sanctioned by God. Man be a straight shooter and stop this misrepresentation. If you have to use these kinds of tactics what does that say about your argument?

Iíll tell you what it says. Your argument is a house of cards.

Hence proof of why Christianity is the worst set of morals possible.

If any of his victims were not Christian they are in hell while he chuckles at them from heaven.

Sampson was guilty of being a womanizer, fraternizing with the enemy. In the end God restored him.
Jeffery Dahmer was an evil atheist of the worst sort. God gave him his right mind and forgave him.

Daffy nobody is surprised that many of your bible myth heroes are products of incest. Just look at the insane sht they wrote! The earth is square flat and resting on top of pillars!

Lmfao!

So who was the strange Arab man who went into your Dad's hospital room and converted him to Islam? Was it Muhammad?:)

Does God want the 49ers to win, or the Ravens?

The winning players tend to thank God for the victory. Why don't the losers ever get pissed at God for letting the other guys win?

I was kidding, but seriously? Is the communication only through the net & phones? No real interaction?
Why would "real" interaction not include through the internet? People are more themselves online than they are in person. In the physical society there are pressures that most people give into which dictate their behavior and words, you cannot trust someone if you don't get to know them without those pressures first. Online those pressures do not exist, primarily because of the illusion of anonymity. I also don't like USians much at all, and prefer the company of Europeans, mostly people in the UK. I am just not that "American" at heart, and cannot stoop low enough to even hang out with the dullards that live in this country.

Spare me the sermon... The book speaks for itself. I've read it.
Utter nonsense, copied from older myths.
Much ado about nothing of substance.

The New Testament writer of the Gospel of John attempted to portray Jesus as a valid prophet who was predicted by Moses.

Linking Jesus to miracles was part of that process.
Then they evolve Jesus further by claiming he is now the NEW savior which people must believe in.

In doing so, these writers portray Jesus as giving instructions which contradict God's word in the Old Testament.

Because Jesus presumed to speak things in God's name which God NEVER commanded any of his prophets to say, Jesus qualifies as a false prophet.

Jesus was also put to death, fulfilling Deut 18:20.!

Christians are always proclaiming that Jesus fulfilled hundreds of Old Testament "prophecies" but you can be sure that the fulfillment of Deut 18:20 by Jesus is one example you won't hear Christians advertise to the world.

We call that reality.

See? You have no clue what's out there.

Perhaps it's just the town you live in that's full of those dullards.

You'll never know though, you remain hidden behind a screen.

I feel bad for you - you're missing out on life.

I am addressing the topic, but there is no double standard.

God is not human & can't have superhuman powers.

Period.
